Hi
I keep a breeding pair of D.Azureus in a 60x40x40cm (WxDxH) Viv. These dart frogs r ideal as a starter species. Alot of people use the Exo terra vivs but i personally hate them as they are unsuitable due to the mesh tops and gaps around the doors etc.. Alot of work needed to make them suitable for Dart frogs. All my vivs are ENT's, which are designed for the purpose. E.N.T. Terrarientechnik - Dendrobaten-Terrarien These are available from www.dartfrog.co.uk.

The diet consists mainly of Fruitflies, Woodlice, springtails, Waxworms.
I'd avoid using micro crickets as they can distroy your plants and can also harm your frogs.
